Star Wars Characters Invade Thomas Kinkade Paintings


What do you get when you mix the idyllic pastel paintings by Thomas Kinkade with characters from Star Wars? Something hilariously original! Artist Jeff Bennett recently created an awesome series called War on Kinkade that shows what happens when stormtroopers, AT-ATs, and Imperial Star Destroyers attack the incredibly sweet American scenes Kinkade is famous for, which include beautiful gardens, streams, stone cottages and bridges.

You’ve just got to love Technabob’s description of these, “It's as if the Empire has invaded a quiet Christmas village and turned it into an Imperial base.”

You couldn’t go into a mall in America without seeing a Thomas Kinkade painting sold somewhere. The recently deceased painter was claimed to be “America’s most-collected living artist” before his death, with an estimated 1 in every 20 American homes owning a copy of one of his paintings.
